Preliminary listing subject to owner's approval

Summer Dream is like brand new, a pristine example of the Hans Christian Explorer. The design is the ninth design in Chuck Paine's acclaimed Bermuda series in collaboration with Tony Seibert, the lead designer for the Hylas 49. Truly a yacht conceived, engineered and constructed for serious offshore passage-making and extended living aboard. She is large enough to take you anywhere in the world in comfort and safety, and small enough to be handled easily by a couple in their later years.

The Hans Christian Offshore Explorer was designed as a rugged, blue water sailboat fully capable of circumnavigating the world while offering luxury and comfort that can be appreciated out at sea or on a coastal cruise. She has a shoal draft of 6' and is one of the highest performance cruising sailboats ever built. She thrives in big seas and will cruise at 8 to 10 knots in almost any sea state.

Summer Dream features the three stateroom, two head layout with top quality construction. This ideal, bluewater passage maker has a bow thruster. She has watertight bow and stern areas with reinforced Kevlar and E-glass. 2/3 skeg hung “sacrificial” rudder, oversized standing rigging. There are deck lockers that you can really store items in, a 75hp Yanmar with low hours, Xantrex 1800 watt inverter, 180 gallons of fuel, and 270 gallons of water. She is low maintenance above deck with exquisite joinery below - a rare high quality vessel.

Center Cockpit

The Explorers' center cockpit is designed with the helm further aft and accommodates better visibility, safety ( a full 12' between the helmsman and following seas), and less motion - all good choices for offshore cruising. The cockpit is huge, but the actual well is small.  Two transverse walk through steps in the coaming insure that when waves come aboard only 26 cu ft of water will stay in the well.  Two 1 1/2" diameter hoses quickly drain the cockpit.  The cockpit benches are more than 7' long, 20" wide and have 15" tall raked seat backs with built in lumbar support.  The cockpit will seat nine, sleep two.

Deck Equipment

The sugar scoop transom/ swim platform is also great for dinghy boarding.  Liveaboards will love the fact that they can stack ten grocery bags on board before they even leave the dinghy.  An integrated locker provides bonus storage.  The swim ladder reaches 3' below the water.  A hot and cold transom shower makes the platform a luxurious experience.  Grab rails extend the entire length of the steps and are easily reached from the water. The swim platform is a delightful base for warm water play and socializing.
